Nice walk with a bit of adventure. Trail is pretty much all boardwalk across the bog and could use a bit of maintenance. Chance of feet getting wet in a couple of spots with just my 205 lbs on some of the floating portion. Over all with the drive for something different. I will come back in spring or summer.

Absolutely gorgeous. I loved all the trails and art. Loved how there were benches throughout the trails and walkways. Just beautiful. Our little fox baby loves every minute of it as well. Definitely going back soon.

This is a pretty big area but the trails and boardwalk barely venture past the first 25% of the bog. The area is known for the carnivorous plants and easy access to the Purple Pitcher Plant that eats flies. Definitely a unique spot. Surrounding the bog though, there is obvious invasive plant species problems. The boardwalk is kind of short and in need of repairs. There are overgrown areas but that just means that this place is under utilized. Looking for solitude and something different? This might be walk for you. Also a great spot to fund American Woodcocks in April/May.
